Chipotle Cauliflower Hummus Tacos with Cumin Slaw

Chipotle Cauliflower Hummus Tacos with Cumin Slaw by Alison's AllspiceOne of the most fun things about recipe development is taking a recipe you love, and adapting it.  Sometimes it’s about making it healthier, or adapting it to fit different diets.  If you read here often, you know how much I love fish tacos.  However, a lot of readers here are not looking for fish based recipes (I don’t post many).  Therefore, I created chipotle cauliflower hummus tacos with cumin slaw to be vegan, and just as delicious!

Variations to the Chipotle Cauliflower Hummus Tacos with Cumin Slaw recipe:

  1.  To make these gluten free, try corn tortillas in place of flour tortillas.
  2. Winter vs Summer: In summer, I like to steam veggies in the microwave to avoid heating the house. In winter, try roasting the cauliflower in the oven instead of microwaving it.
  3. Optional Cheese: Add crumbled queso fresco if you are a cheese lover.
  4. It would be delicious to bread and fry the cauliflower, but not as healthy.  Do whatever works for you.
